So i was cleaning the mud off the underside of the jeep. I keep jacking it up with the sway bars disconnected to see how much room i had to go before the brake lines were maxed out. Goodnews is that they didnt even come close. Bad news it bc my jeep stopped flexing and the tire lifted off the ground. The only thing i could see that kept it from still flexing out is the shock bottoming out. Like i said before...time for new shocks. How do i figure out what lengths i should be looking at? Anything else (components)i should be looking for that would stop it from flexing and start binding?

What shocks are you currently running? Maybe get some lengths for us?

i could be completely wrong, but i would think it would be from the center of the mount hole (for lack of a better term), on each end. and there are 2 measurements- extended and collapsed. how to do that? couldnt see any other way than to remove it and measure, to be completely accurate.

Did some research on the Morris4x4 website, the Nitro8000 shocks fall within the range for a 2inch BB and the measurements are:
Front extended: 22.75"
Collapsed: 13.54
Rear extended: 25.35"
Collapsed: 15.05"

Thats team work! Ill do some research and see if i cant find anyother shocks online that will offer me some more extension. Looked like the stock coil spring reached its limitations too. Thats the down fall of a bb. Been looking at fron 2.5 springs to get rid of my front rake anyway. Jks, ome, or teraflex?

OME and get rid of the BB all around. if they make the OME is a 2.5 for the JK, you could prob run 3inch lift shock and get some good travel out of the springs.
